Deja vu

Howdy,

	Perhaps this is another dead horse that has been senselessly beaten
here, but are there any neurophysiological explanations for deja vu? 
I've heard theories ranging from the somewhat plausible: Event is
anomalously stored in LTM rapidly, thus creating the sensation of
familiarity, as it accesses the instant "memory"; to the
not-so-plausible: Deja vu is experienced when your timeline loops onto
itself, and touches a different temporal point, giving your mind access
to information from that time.
	Does the first explanation have any truth to it, or is there a better
explanation?

Dave
